Installing Microsoft Office 2010 side-by-side with Office 2007
Posted on 2013-05-29
I have purchased Microsoft Office 2013 standard, downgradeable to Office 2010 std.
My intention is to run both Office 2010 and Office 2007 together, with the exception of Outlook which will have only 2010. I have run the Microsoft OCT to configure the installation, Under Remove Previous Version, selected the second option and Remove None for all the products except Outlook.
However, it always removes the previous version. I am using SCCM 2007 for the installation.
Also, in the Licensing section of the OCT I have selected the MAK key, entered my Office 2010 key, checked the I accept the terms option, Display level=None, and Suppress Modal is checked, yet after installation, users are required to activate the product. Is there a way to get around this? We didn't have to do this for Office 2007.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
